Postecoglou reflects on game and decisions
Ange Postecoglou has been speaking to Sky Sports about his side’s display and that ridiculous game.
He said: “It’s almost impossible to analyse the game. It just seemed to get out of control, but I am really proud of the players’ efforts.
“We were very close to getting an equaliser on a few occasions, but it wasn’t to be today.
“I thought we started really well, and then, the red card affected the game.
“You have to accept the referee’s decision, that is how I grew up. This constant erosion of the referee’s authority is where the game is going to get – they are not going to have any authority. We are going to be under the control of someone with a TV screen a few miles away.
“The decision is the decision. In 26 years I have had plenty of bad decisions, I have had plenty fall in my favour. It is what it is.”
Postecoglou provides injury update
Speaking to talkSPORT’s Adrian Durham after the game this evening, Ange Postecoglou has shared an update on Micky van de Ven and James Maddison.
He said: “Micky’s looks like a significant one.
“James took a knock to the ankle, so hopefully, that’s not too bad.”
He also shared why Spurs continued to play a high line.
“That’s who we are, mate. Even if we had five men, we would give it a go.”
Chelsea into the top ten
Now that the dust is settling on that bonkers game, let’s have a look at the Premier League table.
Pochettino sums up game
Mauricio Pochettino has had his say on that incredible match between Tottenham and Chelsea.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “That’s the football we want.
“We were really competitive.
“The game was really amazing. We faced a team full of confidence, so it’s an important victory for us.
“We didn’t start well. It was difficult for us to control the game and the space.
“Tottenham started the game with a lot of pace and energy and created a difficult situation.
“But after we conceded, we showed the quality are supposed to have.”
Pochettino takes the win
There were plenty of boos throughout for Mauricio Pochettino, and he looked frustrated at times, but he walks away with a 4-1 win in the bag.
The Blues struggled for a bit against nine men and conceded two very late chances that could have gone in.
But he’s ended Spurs’ unbeaten start.
